Car warranty advice

A car warranty covers you from unexpected costs if your car breaks down. The Car Expert has all the information you need to know.

Brought to you by

A warranty is a form of additional insurance cover against certain faults on your car. It does not override or replace your rights under the Consumer Rights Act, but it covers a wider range of faults which would not be acceptable reasons for rejecting the car altogether.

A warranty can save you thousands of pounds on mechanical repairs on your used car, offering protection against the cost of parts and labour if an insured component fails during ordinary use.

The Car Expert has partnered with ALA insurance to bring you regular information and advice about car warranties, as well as exclusive offers for our readers.
